LaFerrari Aperta sells for US$10 million

Presumably, Ferrari will make no more after this one. A few weeks ago, the Italian automaker announced it would be building one last example, putting the total production number at 210.

That LaFerrari - the 500th vehicle - was finished in a patriotic Italian livery as a gift from Ferrari to the people in central Italy affected by the devastating earthquakes, and it raised an impressive £5.3 million at auction, around five times the real list price of the auto.

Ferrari marked its 70th anniversary in grand fashion with a weekend of celebrations at Maranello, where more than 4,000 clients and nearly a thousand cars from across the globe converged on the company's famous test track in Fiorano. We're not sure that the owner of the 209th model will be too happy that their vehicle is slightly less special, but we're sure they can drown their sorrows with a screaming V12.

The National Guard will stage crews in Greensboro, Asheville and Charlotte on Sunday, according to Cooper. The State Emergency Operations Center remains activated and operations will continue as long as needed.

It has a special livery for the final edition with a red Rosso Fuoco body with white Bianco Italia racing stripes.

Supercar manufacturer Ferrari has sold its last version of its LaFerrari hypercar, with all the funds going to the Save the Children charity.

When all the conditions are just right, such as the date, the occasion, the venue and the guest list, a auto auction can deliver some pretty staggering results for those benefitting from the proceeds. All proceeds from the sale have been donated to Save the Children, an global organization that works to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in over 120 countries worldwide.
